Hi... I am rarely over here.... I am normally on the adoption board but I need some input from similar aged babies... or their mamas
So DD is a serious, take-it-all-in sort of gal and very sweet to us at home.
My problem... I get super tense when she grabs things from other little ones. Also she has no concept of gentle touches... she practically smacked a little boy today as she went up to pat him.
How much interfering do you do w/your LO in a group? Do you let them steal from other kids? I know we need to work on gentle touches vs smacking... We are only around other little ones once a week and I don't see that changing soon.
I guess I am struggling... I don't want to raise a playground bully but I also don't want to be a helicopter mom who constantly interferes with play.
